Workshop: MongoDB and node.js

In this hands-on workshop, mongoose developer Aaron Heckmann will walk you through building an app using MongoDB and node.js. This session will cover:

  • choosing a mongodb module (low level driver vs helpers - many to choose from)
  • building an app using express + driver or mongoose
  • best practices for schema design, connection management, validation, querying, persisting, and updates
  • advanced querying (streaming)
  • gridfs file storage
  • analytics
  • replica set setup / integration with node

Space is limited to 35 RSVPs!

    Hi everybody. I'm excited to host this event at Voxer and get to meet all of you. Remember that space is very limited. If your schedule has changed and you'll no longer be able to attend, please drop off the list and let some of the wait listers get in and be able to plan their Friday. Thanks.
